The Sanction is Bell's all-new lightweight, recession-busting full-face helmet. Weighing in at 950 grams, the fully-ventilated, low-profile helmet was designed with the younger rider in mind. Its sizing skews smaller than both its predecessor (the Bellistic) and the more robust Bell Drop, and is squarely aimed at BMX, Super-D and all-mountain riding.

Q: I've been told the 2011 Sanctions are smaller and the 2012 Sanctions are true to size? I'm a 57-58cm head...
A: Bell lists sizing for the 2012 Sanction as: SM (52-54cm / 20.45"-21.25"), MD (55-57cm / 21.65"-22.45"), LG (58-60cm / 22.8"-23.6"). As you are on the edge between medium and large, we suggest a medium since all helmets should fit snugly and not move if you shake your head. Never ride in a loose helmet.
Q: Is this helmet suitable for adults? It say designed with younger riders in mind. I just ordered one for myself, before I actually read that part. Is this going to be too small for me? I have a 57cm head. Thank you.
A: This helmet will fit any age rider depending on their head measurement size. There is a size chart included to the right of the product. You would need a size medium with a 57cm measurement.
I bought this helmet for the look, color and price. I "tested" it at Angel Fire last weekend and can say I really like it. The fit is perfect and I didn't even notice it was there. I would recommend it.
My first full face helmet and I was really happy. I have been concerned that a full face helmet would limit my vision. Although peripheral vision is definitely impacted, this helmet does a great job of providing maximum visibility while providing great protection. Really light too, wore it all day in 95 degree heat and didn't feel like it got too hot. Fit my goggles and sunglasses fine too.
